Dual Career programme

The University of Bath is home to a plethora of Dual Career student-athletes across a diverse range of sports who show exceptional achievement and potential in both their academic and sporting endeavours. To help maximise their potential in both fields, we provide a package of support tailored to the needs and demands of a Dual Career lifestyle.

Dual Career athletes are:

  • Recognised on their NGB Performance Pathway, or an NGB endorsed TASS athlete;
  • Studying full or part-time at the University of Bath (unless as a part of TASS);
  • Competing in an Olympic, Paralympic or Commonwealth sport;
  • Competing at an exceptional level in a sport outside of Olympic, Paralympic or Commonwealth sport that can contribute to BUCS Points.

Dual Career athletes receive:

  • Free access to the Team Bath Gym and facilities;
  • Access to a qualified lifestyle advisor who will support them through the demands of a Dual Career lifestyle;
  • A mentorship scheme;
  • Up to 75% off professional qualifications;
  • A series of workshops;
  • A parking permit (if you are a UK Sport Funded athlete at the Podium or Podium Potential Level);
  • Discounts within the STV Sports Café.
